Comment Re:Time Shifting: Difference between TiVo and P2P (Score 1) 430

TV shows cost much, much less to produce than movies, but compare $15-20 for a movie DVD vs. $40-$50 for a TV show season. I know that one is 2 hours vs. the other being 30-40 hours, but margins on selling a TV season DVD are orders of magnitudes higher than for movie DVD.
A TV series on DVD/Blu-Ray will be no longer than 16 hours, 20-23 episodes a season, 42 minutes an episode
